Meeting Planning

Please submit your abstracts and proposals for the 2022 Annual Meeting! As in 2021, we aim to accommodate all those presentations, panels, workshops, seminars, and roundtables that are accepted for the program, although we cannot be certain as yet what shape the meeting will take.

We are scheduled to hold the 2022 Annual Meeting in San Francisco at the Hilton Union Square but obviously the pandemic continues to provide unprecedented challenges. Currently, we are engaged in early-stage planning with our counterparts at AIA and at the Hilton San Francisco, and with audiovisual and technology vendors in order to investigate possibilities for a hybrid meeting. We are also monitoring the pandemic and vaccine rollout globally. We have received helpful feedback already from members on the 2021 Annual Meeting survey. Additionally, we plan to distribute a 2022 Pre-Annual Meeting Survey in late spring or early summer to elicit member feedback on the organization of the meeting and individual participation needs and preferences. 

Once we are able to form a clearer idea of the most appropriate format for the 2022 Annual Meeting, taking into account public health concerns, accessibility and equity, existing contracts and measures necessitated by COVID-19, we will be sure to inform all members of developments and have an ongoing dialogue with presenters and attendees.
